Roomba Undercarriage

We've had two Roombas for quite a while now. With a minimal amount of care, they really do a super job! The one thing we found you have to watch is if things get wound up in their undercarriage. If you let those items sit in there, they can wrap more and more tightly around important spinning parts and really interfere with the Roomba's general health.


Part of the problem is that hairs can get caught in the yellow housings that spin the brushes around. The housings are very snugly fit, and once the hairs get in, it can be really tricky to dig them out. We've tried needles and push-pins to try to do this. It's really important to get them out in a day or two - not to let them roll around and get wrapped in.
